On this Kyoto Full-Day Tour we had an unforgettable experience. Our tour guide was very professional and knowledgeable, provided a lot off historical information about visited places. He provided great service. We had wonderful time in Kyoto.

Did an EXCELLENT job! Nice transportation - various pick up and drop off options. Lots of information given on the bus traveling and at the sites! Could not have asked for more! Tour guide was VERY knowledgable and congenital.

Fabulous sightseeing tour and it was very busy but well organised. It was a long day and tiring for a mature couple but worth it.

I had limited time in Kyoto so this was idea to be able to visit the major sites. it is essentially the morning tour and the afternoon tour with a lunch thrown in. Both tour leaders were fun and informative and gave us enough time to be able to have a quick look around despite it being a packed tour.

My only complaint would be on the lunch. We were on the second group to be called for lunch as our afternoon tour left later, but by the time we reached the lunch hall, there was hardly any food left, so didn't really get to eat much all day. It was a good thing I had some gummies on me to munch.

Really great tour. It was face paced, but that way you got to the see the maximum of sights in just one day. The guides were knowledgeable and friendly. Lunch was poorly organized however.

Kyoto is just a stunning city to visit. By far my favorite city we visited while in Japan. This tour gives a full day of seeing some of the top spots of Kyoto. It rained the entire day, but our guide still took us everywhere and went out with us and happily explained all the buildings we got to see.

We had a wonderful time! We had 2 guides one in the morning and another one in the afternoon. Both guides very knowledgeable, helpful and funny. I wish we had 1/2 an hour more to visit each landmark, though.

A must! We did this tour with our children ages 11 and 13 and it was a perfect way to see the highlights of Kyoto. The guide was super informative and our driver was wonderful. The bus is very comfortable, there are plenty of opportunities for photos, snacks, bathroom breaks - you won't feel rushed at all. A great way to see so much in one day! The lunch was very good and we appreciated the chance to look at souvenirs without any pressure to purchase although we did since the art centre has great items! I would highly recommend this tour!

Overall this tour was worth it, below are some key points of the two tours morning and afternoon.
---------------------------

Morning Tour:
1. The tour guide was awesome. She made jokes all morning and had lots of useful information. I learned a lot from her, not only about the tour locations we went to but about Kyoto while we drove around.

2. The tour was only slightly rushed in the morning, and only due to the Imperial Palace having strict arrival and departure rules. Overall we moved at a comfortable pace.

3. Every location we went to was worth the visit. None of the areas were too packed with people.
---------------------------

Lunch:
The lunch was a good Japanese meal. It wasn't the most amazing meal I have had, but It surpassed my expectations for a meal that was included in a tour. I left full and satisfied, the meal was prepared well and tasted good.
---------------------------

Afternoon Tour:
1. The tour guide for the afternoon tour was different then the morning. She was good, but I preferred the morning tour guide because she seemed to have more fun with jokes and interacting with us. The afternoon tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable. She kept us on schedule and informed with history of the areas we were in. She also taught us the correct way to enter temples and shrines.

2. The locations we visited in the afternoon seemed to be more full with tourists. I am not sure if that was due to the later in the day schedule or the locations.

3. Pacing was perfect. Never felt rushed and we covered a lot of ground.
---------------------------

If I had to choose between the morning or afternoon tours, I would select the afternoon one. The locations we covered were more interesting to me personally and the pacing perfect. The morning one is very much worth it though, so if you have time to do the full day tour I suggest it.

excellent guide and itinerary. I could never have covered as much territory in one day. Great overview of the main sites in Kyoto - which enabled us to do other sightseeing during the rest of our Kyoto stay, knowing we had seen the key places first. Highly recommend this tour as it is great value, lunch was excellent.

Everything was great, seeing all the temples and shrines was wonderful and our guides where fantastic. The only complaint would have to be the meal. It was extremely small, the main was apparently chicken but all we received was two tiny pieces, the tempura was cold by the time we got there also.

Must stop sites to see and explore. While you can't go into Nijo Castle, it was still magnificent to see this building along the small lake. Just gorgeous.
